Leonardo Academy online training: The integration of LEED for New Construction (LEED-NC) and LEED for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB)
(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) December 13, 2010 - This course discusses the integration of LEED for New Construction (LEED-NC) and LEED for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB) to achieve project objectives.
Participants will learn how to build LEED-EB success into LEED-NC projects by design actions that will earn points for recertification under LEED-EB. They will learn how to specify the desired sustainability performance of a new building using LEED-NC and LEED-EB. Two case studies are presented as illustrations.Course approved by USGBC as counting toward the LEED-specific credential maintenance requirement. Course participants will be able to:
Identify design actions in LEED-NC that will earn points for recertification under LEED-EB
Understand the practicality of specifying sustainable building performance using LEED-NC and LEED-EB
Understand how to specify sustainable building performance for new buildings using LEED-NC and LEED-EB
